The Usual Fruit Pizza

Cream together 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup sugar, and one egg. Mix in 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp. cream of tartar, and 1/2 tsp. baking soda.

Press dough into pizza pan (or into two pie plates) and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool.

Mix well 8 oz. cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, and 2 tablespoons lemonade or pineapple juice. Spread over cooled crust.

Arrange fruit of your choice on top of filling.

If the pizza won't be eaten immediately, brush this glaze on top to keep the fruit from browning.
In a saucepan, mix together 3/4 cup pineapple juice and 3/4 lemonade (or 1 1/2 cups lemonade or pineapple juice) with 2 tablespoons corn starch. Bring to a boil while stirring and boil one minute until thickened and clear. Spread glaze over top of pizza and refrigerate until ready to gobble.

Thank you for the recipe!

. . . I'm thinking if I made it, I would have to make at least 6 pizzas. This sounds like the kind of dessert you could eat forever without feeling like puking.(Which I suppose is rather telling to our normal dessert eating practices, balanced out only by the fact we don't have dessert very often.)

(P.S. I feel weird commenting under my blogger idenity.)
